I'm towing my tiny camper with a 1998 Ford E150 van.

A 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe. 4cyl + awd = not a ton of power. It was definitely a factor in choosing the lightest 5ft wide teardrop I could find.

So since our other old Plymouth wagon still needs a lot of work, my wife and I decided to buy another wagon that is more roadworthy for towing and other things.
Our 1967 Plymouth Fury III wagon. This winter I will be getting it ready for long trips next season.

* I owned a sorta similar Mopar product from 69-71, when it got T-boned on an icy road by a '59 PINK CADILLAC (of all things). The Caddy backed-up and drove off, while I had a wheel stuck in a drainage culvert. I still dream of driving it, a 1967 Dodge Monaco 500 2-dr hardtop, with 383 4-bbl. + Torqueflite. Fast and comfortable, but having to service the drum brakes every other week (I was a young college student with a long commute) was its' only weak point. Wish I still had it. Enjoy yours!

My 2009 Scion 'XD' is a 1.8 liter Toyota 4 cyl with a 5 spd manual transmission. I was able to get 26mpg towing my 4x6 V-nose cargo trailer before the mods.
We've added 400# and 5 feet of length going from 10' and 760 lbs to 15' and 1000 lbs. The Beavers Bend gathering April 20th will be it's maiden voyage!
